StressCheck Tutorial: 3D Modeling of a Skin-Stiffener-Fasteners Assembly (In-Plane Contact)
Abstract: Modeling of a 3D skin, stiffener and fasteners (as cylindrical shanks, no heads/nuts) assembly for an in-plane multi-body contact analysis. In-plane axial loads only, in which the stiffener/skin load ratio is 0.55. Defining parts for each subassembly for easier creation and assignment of contact zones. Model pre-processing only.

“Of the three FEA products we use, StressCheck® gives me the most confidence when it comes to performing post-processing quality checks on multi-body contact analysis results. StressCheck® has the capability to extract any data of interest and convergence information for that data at any location in the model domain; the other two FEA products do not. And when it comes to interference fit multi-body contact solutions, I haven’t found any software to outperform StressCheck®.”
